None. Both of their methods are sketchy and biased, not indicative at all of the relative 'quality' of each department (if such a thing can be measured). But you shouldn't decide where to go based on top lists, these only exist to inflate your ego, and a couple of years into grad school literally nobody cares what # your department's at in US news. It won't do you any good being in Princeton if you can't produce any nontrivial research during your time there.
